City of Boston Ordered to Preserve Email

Employees at Boston's City Hall are in big trouble with email according to this Boston Globe article. It seems the common practice is to delete email daily to reduce mailbox load. At least this is the reason provided by one employee. But who forgot about public record laws which require all city email to be saved for two years?

It's hard to believe that a major city like Boston is not aware of its obligation to preserve email, but that seems to be the case. No matter; a state judge has issued an order for Boston to change its practice immediately. It was not mentioned what fines or penalties will be levied as a result of the lawsuit, but the violations can incur a fine of up to $500 or a prison sentence of up to one year.

Email archiving needs to be taken seriously by Boston and every other government agency in the United States. ... Bob Spurzem

On April 15, 2009, Microsoft announced that Exchange 2010 will have built-in support for archiving. Though Microsoft has been slow to reveal details about the new offering, its announcement is shaking the archiving market and the adjacent markets for e-discovery and compliance. In this webcast, David Ferris cuts through the confusion about E2010 and explains what the product’s archiving features do, what they don’t do, and how the technology is likely to evolve. A Q&A session gives attendees the opportunity to ask questions.
